Delphi Product & Service Solutions launched its annual Delphi Dream Shop Sweepstakes in the U.S. and Canada. For the grand prize, Delphi will equip one lucky professional automotive technician with Delphi parts, tools, equipment, supplies and training. Hundreds of other prizes will be awarded monthly, weekly and instantly.
The winning technician can use the grand prize to upgrade his existing workspace or build his ultimate Dream Shop. Technicians can register at the dedicated Delphi Dream Shop website (delphidreamshop.com) or, new for 2013, through Delphi’s Facebook page (facebook.com/DelphiAutoParts). The grand prize winner will be introduced this November at the Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) in Las Vegas.
“In its third year, the Delphi Dream Shop continues to receive an enthusiastic response from technicians,” said Lúcia Veiga Moretti, president, Delphi Product & Service Solutions. “This year it is even easier to enter and follow the contest with the addition of Delphi’s Facebook page, which many are already using – along with Twitter and YouTube – to learn about Delphi products and to diagnose, service and repair vehicles of today and the future.”
The Delphi Dream Shop sweepstakes includes electronic equipment needed to service the increasingly complex vehicle electronics found on-vehicle, including Delphi’s new AutoIQ diagnostic kit with Wi-Fi-enabled tablet and a high-performance laptop with shop management software. It also includes earth-friendly shop equipment like an A/C recovery machine, gas caddy system and fuel system tester.
Other prizes include shop essentials such as mechanic tools, air tools and compressor, a heavy-duty lift, transmission jack, two-ton service jack, engine lift, battery charger and tester and brake lathe.
In addition, the grand prize winner will receive Delphi parts from its fuel, engine management, heating and cooling, and Diesel product portfolio. Delphi will also include comprehensive training from its award-winning program, as well as a subscription to Delphi’s RepairPoint, to provide further online diagnostic support.
Since being chosen as the 2012 Delphi Dream Shop grand prize winner, Ryan Mullin from Rothesay, New Brunswick, Canada, has had fun taking delivery of his prizes. “I’m still pinching myself. I didn’t think I had a chance to win, but you can’t win if you don’t enter,” said Ryan.
In addition to the grand prize, technicians are eligible to win monthly prizes of handheld touch-screen tablets, weekly prizes of Delphi mechanic gloves, shop stools and fender covers, plus hundreds of instant prizes including Bass Pro Shop gift cards, Delphi lunch coolers and Delphi hats. Technicians are encouraged to enter early and visit often. Official rules can be found at delphidreamshop.com.
