BMW Control Arm Bushing Replacement

Hey guys - I need an opinion from folks in the know. My Mechanic says i should replace both bushings at once rather than just address the one that we know is in need of replacement. My contention is that he said they other looks good - do I really need to replace both?

Also, if I replace both - I'm thinking I should prob go with aftermarkets - something that will last "forever" but also provide the same or better ride quality. What are my top options in that regard?

Thanks in advance!

Also, for those of you that are novices like me - check out this video for a clear understanding of this discussion:
