The French use european butter, right? I'd go with that since you have it already.
I believe lots of commercial bakeries use convection ovens; so go with that. Or if you wish to go with a still oven, make sure you pre-heat well.
And the long rise (the three day process) should ensure a flavorful dough for your croissant.
Let us know how they come out!
