    They will fit but you won't be able to tilt them forward to access the rear seats.
    I put some 5 door VR6 seats in my brothers 3 door Golf and we had to strip the seats down to the frames and swap loads of bits over to get the tilting mechanism to work, it was a right pain in the a**e
    Your best of keeping your eye out for a set from a 3 door they come up quite regularly on the bay and they will bolt straight in.

    It can work... But as PAT J says... You need to convert them at great expense to be able to let people into the back. ;)
