Headlamp Compatability - 00-04 to 05-07

I have been looking all morning online on multiples of sites and i keep running into this issue.

Headlamps that are built for the 05-07 are made for the ZX4, where as the 00-04 are for the ZX3/ZX5. I have a 2007 ZX3. That being said, if I buy a 00-04 HID Projector will that still fit on my 7 ZX3?

Also, anyone have any recommendations for Built-in HID Projector Headlamps? I tend to steer clear of the cheap stuff, so good recommendations as far as quality and ease of installation.

Any headlight meant for a 05-07 will work on your car regardless of model.

Headlights from 00-04 will not work on you car. They may look similar but the fitment is entirely different between generations.

This.

You have a very limited choice for headlights. Not a lot of aftermarket support for your year. The best thing to do would be to retrofit your own projectors.
