Thumbs down *** BMW E34 540i transmission broke ***

Hey guys,
Ive got a 1995 BMW 540i. A couple days ago my car slid into a curb. Tried driving it out and lost my reverse gear (its automatic BTW).

Transmission was shifting rough driving home and like i said, I lost reverse. I brought it to the shop the next day and the transmission fluid smelt burnt, it was black, and it was low on fluid.

Now im stuck in a position where i dont know if i should buy a used transmission or rebuild mine. Any opinions and locations or places I should go to, to get my car back on the road asap.
