Mein Auto: 528I
Unhappy shifter Cable

Hello, i am knew to the community although I have used info I found here in the past. I am now having a problem with my 1999 528I. the streets were really bad after the winter and it caused a lot of people her in Cleveland problems. Including myself . I went over a terrible chuck hole and when I tried to park I discovered my car would not shift out of drive. I figured it was the cable that runs from the gear shift to the transmission and I was correct in my assumptions. Now what is the price fpr this part and where can I find it besides the dealer?

I actually tried a few junkyards in the city I live and they all said they don't sell that part. That Ill have to go to the dealer. Do you know the correct name for it so that I can google it?
