     Delphi China won five of 18 awards presented by Shanghai GM at the
 automaker's annual recognition early this year for achievement in 2003.
 Delphi was selected from a field of 179 suppliers to Shanghai GM for those
 awards, including one Best Supplier Award and four Excellent Supplier Awards
 (see winners list below).
     Delphi achieved this recognition for excellence in product quality,
 delivery, and service of its industry-leading products including maintenance
 free batteries, dynamics and propulsion systems, engine management systems,
 exhaust emissions control systems, and door latches and door modules.
     "Receiving such recognition from our major customers in China is a great
 honor," says Choon Chon, president, Delphi Asia Pacific.  "It demonstrates
 that Delphi is exceeding our customers' expectations by providing them with
 excellent quality and delivery."
     In 2003, Delphi won a total of 15 awards for its distinguished performance
 from its China-based customers, a list which covers almost all the major
 automakers in the country.  China is the third largest auto-producing country
 in the world.
     According to Yudong Chen, chief engineer of China operations of Delphi
 Energy, Chassis, and Steering, the definition of an "excellent supplier" in
 China has been expanded to include product development and research and
 development capabilities.  "Customers are putting an increased value on
 technology.  Delphi's leadership position in the industry enables us to
 leverage our global resources to better serve customers in China."
     Delphi's strength in delivering high-tech environmentally friendly
 products and technologies that help reduce emissions and fuel consumption is
