This sounds like the transmission has an internal failure, but it's really difficult to know until it is inspected by a repair shop. I would consider taking it back to where you bought it, this may have been a pre-existing condition, hopefully that is possible.

I had similar problem with My 2001 325i. Took it to the dealer and their estimate was $3000+ to open the transmission and diagnose the problem. I took it to another mechanic and he opened the transmission. It turned out to be a broken reverse gear caused by shifting the car to reverse while the car was still moving forward. The mechanic found a used transmision and replaced it. Cost $2700.
