All Aston Martins from 2005 onward can only be programmed via OBD2. The new Aston Martins now have a Bosch MED 17 ECU. These can be programmed via OBD2 or by bench flashing. The bench flashing is done by simply plugging in a cable (no need to open the ECU).
Note: If a car model is “bench flash only”, it means your vehicle will need to be worked on at one of our nationwide dealership. In most cases, if you cannot make it to one of our dealerships, you may have the option of sending your ECU to us for us to program and return. Contact us to find out more.
