Really struggling on this..

I've got the first part ok (i.e. the vehicle class) but when creating the sub class i'm not sure how to fix the car's properties (doors / wheels) at 4.

class Vehicle {
    let wheels: Int
    let doors: Int

    init(wheels:Int, doors:Int){
    self.wheels = wheels
    self.doors = doors


class Car: Vehicle {
    let carWheels: Int = 4
    let carDoors: Int = 4
    // A car mu let wheels: Int

    override.func init(wheels: Int, doors: Int){
      // call super.init

So one of the errors you would have gotten at the start of the challenge was that the Car class's init() was not calling super.init(). super.init() is just the initializer for the parent class. And what are the parameters for the Vehicle class's init()?

Also, don't forget when calling super.init() to include the names of the parameters in the call.

Hope this helps!
