It was messing up all the formatting (the box was disappearing). And I checked all the tags and parentesis.
I wanted to add the other body types, take out Matt, have the right return carriage for the engines and such things.
I even downloaded the code of that part and checked it in word using the tabs to make sure to have all "open" and "close" things, but no way.

You are taking the. Wrong approach. It’s meant to be idiot proof. Don’t think! It’s not designed for smart people.

Just another slight correction on the chassis for the Aero, viz: "The superformed and bonded aluminium chassis". There is no superform parts in any of the Aero's chassis', as mentioned previously the chassis was completely built by Radshape and was a riv-bonded structure with the rivets preventing tear under crash conditions.

Another point worthy of mention is that the AeroMax (note spelling) was the first car built using only super plastic formed panels from, in this case, Superform Aluminium. Regarding the frontal design of the AeroMax with the Cooper S lights, from memory this then went on to be used on the Series III and all subsequent Aero iterations, rather than "This new front design went on to be used on the new AeroMax".

made Brian's suggested change to remove 'superform' from the chassis description.

In Series 3, added Euro 6 emissions & BMW producing engines on a prototype line.

Will, my late 2013 build, 2014 registered Plus 8 is Euro 5, not Euro 6.
I understood that it was only the Aero S5s and the subsequent Plus 8s that were Euro 6.
The engines were unchanged, just the paperwork....

I understood that the engines were built to meet Euro 6 because it was the standard for all cars sold after September 2015.

Mind you, thinking about it, when was the deal done for the prototype line run of the last engines - was that later than the 4.8l introduction?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/European_emission_standards suggests that EU5 was announced Sept '09 and 6 Sept '14

Maybe Morgan didn't bother with the expense of the paperwork until they had to - I guess the engines didn't change and were Euro 6 compliant all along?

Will
