I'm sure it'd be fine, but could I swap the top from an earlier, headliner-less Z3 onto my 2000 top frame w/headliner without any issues? I found a very nice black top at a salvage yard I want to pick up!
Depending upon how early the top is, there are slight differences in a couple points where the top rivets to the frame. Other than that, the whole assembly ought to fit into your body. Keep in mind that some early Z's were manual-top, so it might not have all the provisions to drop right in.
The headliner, however, should be compatible regardless.
