There has to be someone in your area that swapped a 3.46 diff into their 330. They will have a spare 4 bolt input flange (I think I have one or two in my garage). Just post it in your regional forum.

Winter mode doesn't need to be boring. I run style 44 in winter with 15 and 20mm spacers. It looks almost as good as my summer setup.

I built wooden boxes to use instead of jack stands. They are about 20x40 base, 20 inches tall.
With those I felt safe running the car and shifting.

Ride comfort on Billstein PSS10 when set to the softest setting is very good (like stock). They are probably more expensive than other coilovers though.
