    YES & NO

    YES it would physically fit

    but

    NO - it would look rather stupid as the tailipipes themselves would protrude a further 130mm from where they normally sit

    Coupe rear boxes are the same as hatch ones except the tailipipes are longer.

    So Id advise against getting it..... unless its dirt cheap and u do a cut n shut on the tailpipes...oh and the fitment is the same for your car (ie flange or sleeve).........and NA ones dont fit turbo ones and vice versa due to differing diamater pipes

    I did fit one for a buy i met at a brakers yard for £30 but it was sticking out the back a lot an looked funny he was happy so was i £30 for 5 mins work

    the coupe one fits the Astra 4 door might fit the van
    but the Zafira one fits Van's

    indeed it would....... the tailpipes would be hidden under the car - unless of course u want the stealth look.....
