    mk4 5 door/coupe skirts fit the estate and the van but i think you need to mod them a bit to fit the van.

    the van may technically only have 3 doors, but the front doors are the same siuze as the front doors on either a 5dr hatch/saloon or an estate

    99% of body parts are interchangeable between estate & van so I am led to believe
    NOW - Sapphire Black 3dr Astra G

    THEN - Glacier White 2.0Di Estate - 136bhp 1.6 Pineapple Yellow Mk3 - Flame Red 2.0Di Van - Chianti Red 1.8 Coupe - Star Silver 2.2 Zafira - Flame Red 2.2 Linea Rossa Coupe - Titan Gold 1.8 Coupe

    The wheelbase of a 3door and 5 door hatch are exactly the same. Whoever started the myth of saying that they aren't interchangeable was wrong.

    Norm29 has fitted Coupe skirts to his 5 door, Ffoeg has fitted them to his 3 door. Therefore they must be all interchangeable!!

    Maybe there is, but if the estate ones and coupe ones are interchangeable and also fit a 5 door and a 3 door then there would be no reason to think they are significantly different.

    Guess we'd need someone who has fitted those skirts to a 5 door or estate to advise.

    ive got a set of coupe skirts next to me and by the looks you would need to cut a small piece away to fit them to the van.i dont think they will need any cutting to fit the estate.

    Would it be a big job to fit them to the van then? Or a simple cut and sand before spraying? I'm looking at getting coupe skirts for the van when i get her.. Unless there is an alternative for a nice smooth subtle van skirt?
