Transmission stopped working is it time to rebuild or is it electronic?

(1990 BMW 535i)
All forward gears stopped working but reverse still works fine. Could this be a problem with electric controls?

Sounds like the typical "A" clutch problem caused by oil pressure drop from worn stator shaft o-rings. Any mass-marketer shop (e.g. aamco) will sell you a rebuild. Our BMW specialty shop repairs this problem with a special kit from ZF - Out the door price is about $1,100. You should take this very sophisticated, technologically advanced piece of engineering beauty to a trained BMW Specialist (a specialist is someone who only works on one make of vehicle). There are many qualified independent, as well as dealer choices out there. Remember, there is no such thing as a Euro Specialist, or a Japanese Specialist, or a Domestic Specialist, or even a German Auto Specialist - the term would be an oxymoron. A German Auto Specialist would have to be proficient in seven different makes - this is not possible anymore "Jack of all trades, master of none". You can look up an excellent BMW shop by going to the BIMRS web directory (non-profit) at bimrs.org
