It should just be a matter of plugging it in to your car's OBDII port. Not really worth having a mechanic do, at least not worth paying anything to have done.

Good luck and welcome to ecomodder!

Welcome to EM! Do a thread title search here on "Kiwi" and you will see that there are mixed reviews. I thought it would be affordably neat, but it doesn't seem to be able to "calibrate" for others.
