Replace bad headlight bulb or both?

Hey all. My passenger headlight is out(zenon bulbs). I was told by bmw dealer that they should last a long time and that only the bad bulb should be replaced. However another bmw dealer told me I should replace both cuz the other one might go bad. What do you think? Price quote on replace 1 or both is $500-900. I know its a big price difference but is that price about right? They charge a lot for labor its stupid. Thanks!
