I don't think I'd want to replace the other bearing if it's still good. 67k miles is not a lot for that type of bearing. A good technician should be able to tell if the 'good' wheel bearing is failing at this time, using a stethoscope. You may want a second opinion and second estimate from an independent Beemer specialist.
