H7 bulbs are seriously like $10-20. It's not a big deal, and they're very easy to replace. Takes all of about 2 minutes including the time it takes to open and close the hood. :thumbup:
Just buy the bulb and do it yourself, and if you're not able to do so within the next couple of days, for the time being, move the bulb from the high beam into the low beam socket so you have complete lighting until you can replace it.
Your dad has 9006 bulbs? those last a long time, but output sucks. Your BMW has H7 bulbs, giving LOTS more light, but burn out more quickly. Untill I had xenons, I used to do about 1 year per set of lights, not a biggie, 30 euros for a new set. (Philips vision plus).
Oh do drive with lights on , whenever, wherever.
xenon bulbs last up to 5-8 times the lifespan of halogen and give more than twice the light output. You could go the retrofit set route , or buy full xenon headlights for your car.
And yes, they are expensive
