Chrysler is cranking up its Mopar parts unit to make it easier to customize the diminutive Fiat 500.

Mopar will have more than 150 parts for the Fiat, including a Wi-Fi router to turn your microcar into a wireless hot spot.

"The Fiat 500 is one of the most accessorized vehicles in Europe," said Pietro Gorlier, president and CEO of Mopar, Chrysler Group LLC's service, parts and customer-care brand. "We expect the trend to continue here in North America."
