I own a 2006 Volkswagen Beetle hatchback with a 2.5 L engine and thinking about buying a 2007 beetle convertible parts car also with a 2.5 l engine and wondering if all the parts, accept things like the doors, are interchangeable? Thanks for any advice you can give.

Not quite. Many things are but there are quite a bit of differences. The battery is a different size (H5 vs H6), the brakes are bigger on the convertible, and a lot of interior trim pieces are different. The trunk/cargo area is completely different as well. The things I mentioned all happened to me when buying parts at a parts store. Most parts store systems just say they sell 2 different kinds of parts for what appear to be the same car. But in reality they are separated by couple and convertible.
