    ----------NOT A TEACHER-------
    None of those are common. Why don't you just say "I'd really appreciate it if......"

    Is this the closing of a message?

    Irregardless, I think you have married two common phrases, "Many thanks." and "Thanks in advance." There's nothing wrong with this, but it is a little awkward, and there is no need to capitalize "thanks" or "advance".

    If you want to give emphasis to "Thanks in advance.", you could simply add an exclamation point.

    I don't have much of a problem with "Many thanks in advance" as long as only the first word is capitalised and it ends with a full stop. It's not a standard ending but there's nothing wrong with it grammatically. Personally, I don't thank people in advance for anything, just in case they don't do it!

    Exactly. " Its reputation has not risen over the years, and it is still a long way from general acceptance. Use regardless instead."

    Learners may hear some native speakers saying it, but I recommend that they (the learners) do not use it.

    Don't worry about it. I have lost count of the number of times I've slipped up.
