Help! No reverse on 540i

Hoping to get some advice so I can repair it myself. My 540i runs exceptionally well when going forward. However when placed on reverse it appears to be in park or neural. Please advice.

Sounds like the tranny is going. Had a friend with an e46. His reverse stopped working which led to having his transmission rebuilt. Twas an auto 323ci.
