Stuck on the final exam challenge

Hi, could anyone help me out here? I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. The compiler says that the second init needs an override or something

Vehicle.swift
class Vehicle {
    let wheels: Int
    let doors: Int

    // Designated initializer
    init(wheels: Int, doors: Int) {
        self.wheels = wheels
        self.doors = doors
    }
}

class Car: Vehicle {
    // A car must default to 4 wheels and 4 doors
    init(wheels: Int, doors: Int) {
      super.init(wheels: 4, doors: 4)
    }
}

I had a hard time with this one as well.

So the first part that you have is correct in that you designated your intializer using self.

The final part you almost have, all you need to do is remove the values you place in the init. so you would just have:

class Car: Vehicle {
    // A car must default to 4 wheels and 4 doors
    init(){
      // call super.init
      super.init(wheels: 4, doors: 4)
    }
}
