Well ****....
 
On my way home last night wound up being a dumbass and fishtailed from a start and went into a sign sideways and spun my car 180.
passenger fender is thrashed, same with bumper, hood looks fine.
However I couldnt move the shifter after i came to a stop, seems the drivetrain might have moved alitle. The Wheel might have hit on the sign/dug in the ground when I spun. Did that cause this problem, how much $ am i looking at

absolutely no way for us to even estimate what you're looking at without detailed pictures. even then, we can't see it in person and there may be more underlying damage.

Getting it inspected tonight with estimate for us, i should probably borrow a can of lube for this...

Good luck with the repairs.
Just be glad that no one was hurt in the accident.

Don't brake when the car starts to fishtail....power out of it with opposite steering!

i hope so, im still worried about why my shifter is out of alignment.

Looks like that front took a pretty good hit. I ran my '08 up on a curb avoiding a crazy woman and had to replace the K-member to get it back in alignment. Just scratched the wheel. Only a shop can find damage like that. It could be part of your problem.

Might have moved/cocked/bent the K member and moved the motor and tranny. Likely the control arm got jammed when the wheel hit or dug in. Its the only way I can see an impact causing the shifter to bind

Exactly

Learning to power slide, and fishtail in the rain soaked streets is a good exercise!
