Edit: I misread the op description and describe a completely unrelated but useful issue below;

My customerís 328xi does the same exact thing going into reverse!

Sounds like it is just a linkage issue. Cable sleeve compressed or bent cable grip etc.

I will try to fix the one for my client but in the meantime he just has to push the lever a little past the center detent for reverse. Try to find a method such as putting into M/S and back to D that may snap yours into gear. (Since in your case you can't go past D)

There is likely an adjustment for cable length like a bike has for the brakes.
