You could go to RealOEM.com and enter both models to see if the part number is the same.

I'm pretty sure the top is the same for all years. I had a top on my '98 that I sold to a guy with a later model and it fit perfectly.

There are three types of hard top, as far as I am aware, for the Z3 and they will fit all models.
OEM, Wiesmann and Hamann, the last one being very rare and very expensive.
I am pretty sure that the fitting kits are not universal.
I have a Wiesmann.

OEM hardtops fit all Z3 models ( except coupes, duh!).
