The Mark Identification Matrix is meant to aid in the identification of British made Minis only. Please read the "Minis Built for Export and Minis Built Outside of the UK" section of the Mini Identification article to identify non-British Minis.
The Engine Identification Matrix is intended to be a supplement to the "Identifying Minis by Engine/Power Unit" section of the Mini Identification article. If your engine has an ID tag you should read "Identifying Minis by Engine/Power Unit".
