Q: A few Issues on 2001 BMW Z3

I have a 2001 BMW Z3 with 30,000 miles on it. I took the car to a BMW dealership and they ran a diagnostic test on it and found it to have 3 issues:
- Valve Gasket Leak (said needs replacement)
- Thermostat Replacement (t-stat, coolant & bleeder screw jams at times.)
- Brake Light Switch Replacement (causing transmission light to come on.)
I am bring it to another certified BMW mechanic next week, but my question is can I still drive the car over the weekend? The transmission light does not stay on the all the time, just every now and again. The car doesn't sound or smell bad, shifting from gear to gear is very smooth and the temperature gauge runs in the middle. What do yall think?
