Unhappy S500 Stuck in 1st Gear

Hello,

I have a 1996 S500. Couple of weeks ago S500 stuck in 1st Gear, Will not shift to others. Reverse work OK. Now park in Garge, sad :-(

Took to local shop, they recommend replacing trans. They offered a used($1500 average) or rebuild(@2K) and Labor (500-$700).

Can any of you Mercedes owner help?

Thank you in advance,
Niko

It is not exactly the same and his car is W140, yours is W220.
