    Front seats... go straight in
    Rear back rests... go in, but you'll need to swap both parts of the Astra hinge brackets onto the vectra bits.
    Rear bum rest... you need to do a bit of work to make the split vectra bum rest fit the single piece Astra. Easiest way is to the the Vec cover sown together and fitted to the Astra cushion.

    Here's my Vectra GSi rear seats fitted in a Mk4, which cost £70 at a local upholsterers

    I took the option of welding in the brackets for the seat base in out of a vectra.
