    Are vectra b and astra 4 pannel filters the same?

    Vectra B and Astra G models have different Vauxhall part numbers for their panel filters so would therefore assume they are different sizes

    They have seperate listings too when browsing sites such as LMF etc so I think we can safely say they differ in some way - by how much I cant say

    If its going cheap then Id consider buying it and seeing if its possible to make it fit - may just need fine trimming around the edges etc

    Dont think they are the same, I think the vectra one is much longer than the astra one.
