rear bumper interchange ST and z3

I recently purchase a 2005 St for my daughter. The rear bumper cover is in very bad shape. Would a z3 bumper cover bolt up or do I have to buy the expensive st bumper cover? Are the tail lights the same?

No a zx3 nor zx5 bumper will fit. You need a 2005-2007 rear sedan bumper or an after market sedan bumper for a sedan between those years

Take a look at a ZX3 or ZX5 hatchback sometime, and look at the distance between the back of the rear tire and the back of the bumper - much shorter distance ('overhang') than the sedan. That's why the bumper covers for a sedan don't fit a hatchback.

ST is just the top trim sedan. There is no "zx4" molded into it but the differences are what karguy427 posted above me. Any 05-07 zx4/sedan/st rear bumper will work. The hatch back bumpers will not, so no zx3/zx5 bumpers.
