@ Panic which is the best diagnostic machine to buy on a lower budget? I am interested in purchasing one but I don't know which one to go for. I want one that will work on citis, polos and vivos. And also a please advice me on a good timing light that I could purchase.

Sorry for the Hijack

Not going down this path again. Go look at the post that said wireless devices for polo. All my opinions on the subject is there.
GOOD timing lights are in excess of R5000 so just go to your local sparses shop and look at one that can measure timing advance and off you go.

Do you want to spend between R3k and R9k just to be able to set timing. Supply a location maybe we can point you at somebody that can help you .

millenium dash polo has the OBD port behind that little pull out coin holder thingy by your right knee. You pull it further (unclip it) and it swings down and the port is behind it.

sure. go to basic settings. reading block 00. go - idle should climb to about 1500 - now shoot it with a light with advance on tdc and set it to 6 to 8 degrees.
