     This Amendment No. 4 to Schedule 13D relates to the common stock, par value $0.01 per share (“Common Stock”), of Delphi Corporation, a Delaware corporation (the “Issuer”), and is being filed on behalf of (i) Highland Capital Management L.P., a Delaware limited partnership (“Highland Capital”); (ii) Strand Advisors, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Strand”); (iii) James D. Dondero; (iv) Highland Credit Strategies Fund, a Delaware trust (“HCF”); (v) Highland Multi-Strategy Onshore Master SubFund, L.L.C., a Delaware limited liability company (“SubFund”); and (vi) Highland Multi-Strategy Master Fund, L.P., a Bermuda limited partnership (“MasterFund” and, collectively, the “Reporting Persons”), to amend the Schedule 13D that was originally filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) on December 22, 2006 (the “Original 13D”), as amended by Amendment No. 1 to Schedule 13D filed with the Commission on January 5, 2007 (the “13D First Amendment”), as amended by Amendment No. 2 to Schedule 13D filed with the Commission on January 12, 2007 (the “13D Second Amendment”), as amended by Amendment No. 3 to Schedule 13D filed with the Commission on April 20, 2007(the “13D Third Amendment” and collectively, the “Highland 13D”).
     Except as set forth below, all previous Items are unchanged. Capitalized terms used herein which are not defined herein have the meanings given to them in the Schedule 13D previously filed with the Commission.
Item 4. Purpose of Transaction.
     Item 4 is supplemented as follows:
     On May 25, 2007 and in accordance with the terms of a Confidential Information, Standstill and Nondisclosure Agreement previously entered into by Pardus European Special Opportunities Master Fund L.P. (“Pardus”) and the Issuer, Highland Capital, as a potential co-investor with Pardus, entered into a Confidential Information, Standstill and Nondisclosure Agreement with the Issuer, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 7 (the “Confidentiality Agreement”) and incorporated by reference herein. The description of the Confidentiality Agreement contained herein is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Confidentiality Agreement. Pursuant to the terms of the Confidentiality Agreement, the Issuer may provide Highland Capital, either directly or through Pardus, with certain non-public, confidential and/or proprietary information pertaining to the Issuer which is reasonably necessary in order for Highland Capital to evaluate possible negotiated business arrangements with Pardus and its affiliates and the Issuer in connection with the Issuer’s reorganization case under chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code, and in which Pardus and its affiliates would be the lead investor (each, a “Transaction”). Subject to customary exceptions, Highland Capital agrees to keep the Evaluation Material (as defined in the Confidentiality Agreement) strictly confidential. Prior to a Pardus Release Date (as defined in the Confidentiality Agreement), unless otherwise agreed to by the Issuer in writing, Highland Capital agrees to engage in discussions and negotiate with the Issuer and its legal and financial advisors exclusively through Pardus with respect to any possible Transaction. In addition, in accordance with the Confidentiality Agreement, Highland Capital has agreed not to take certain other actions, as more fully described in the Confidentiality Agreement.
     On May 25, 2007, Highland Capital, Pardus and Brandes Investment Partners, L.P. (“Brandes”) also entered into a Diligence Protocol Agreement, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 8 (the “Diligence Agreement”) and incorporated by reference herein. The description of the Diligence Agreement contained herein is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Diligence Agreement. Pursuant to the terms of the Diligence Agreement, each party agreed, among other items, to consult with each other party regarding the existence and substance of Evaluation Material received in accordance with such party’s respective confidentiality agreement with the Issuer, to generally provide each other party with access to the Evaluation Material that such party receives from the Issuer, and to advise each other party if such party does not intend to proceed with a Transaction with the Issuer.

     Highland Capital has had conversations, and plans to have additional conversations, with representatives of the Issuer, Pardus, Brandes and other potential co-investors with Pardus with respect to a possible negotiated business arrangement involving the Issuer and other matters. No assurance can be given that any possible negotiated business arrangement involving the Issuer will be proposed, or if proposed, consummated.
     The Reporting Persons may be deemed to be a “group” (within the meaning of Section 13(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934), but the Reporting Persons expressly disclaim such group membership. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, none of the Reporting Persons may bind, obligate or take any action, directly or indirectly, on behalf of HCF with respect to the matters described herein, and HCF expressly disclaims any intention to take any action with the other Reporting Persons with respect to the Shares or its investment herein. In addition, Highland Capital expressly disclaims, and each of Pardus and Brandes has advised Highland Capital that it expressly disclaims, that Highland Capital, Pardus and Brandes have formed a group, or entered into any agreement to act together, as to the acquisition, holding, voting or disposing of equity securities of the Issuer.
Item 6. Contracts, Arrangements, Understandings or Relationships with Respect to Securities of the Issuer.
     Item 6 is hereby supplemented as follows:
     On May 25, 2007, Highland Capital and the Issuer entered into a Confidential Information, Standstill and Nondisclosure Agreement, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 7.
     On May 25, 2007, Pardus, Highland Capital and Brandes entered into a Diligence Protocol Agreement, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 8.
     Other than as provided herein, there are no contracts, arrangements, understandings or relationships between the Reporting Persons or any other person with respect to the securities of the Issuer.
Item 7. Material to be Filed as Exhibits.
