You could fit the heater with the reducer valve anyway, because if the
pressure is no where near to high, then the valve will act as just a safety
device in times when the pressure does rise above nominal working pressure.
Fit as per instructions and you won't go wrong.
Only one other point. Does the heater have a minimum working pressure ?

Wish I'd remembered to check that site before I bought the expensive and
troublesome to fit, Reliance valve a couple of days ago... :-(
Pressure was 7 BAR here when measured btw, also Thames Water.

Search back, I recently posted the URL of the relevant part of the
OFWAT site that gives the min required pressure at the boundary stop
cock. 7 bar springs to mind.
3.5 bar is only around 35' head just about enough to make it up to the
roof tank(s) but at what flow rate. Sounds to me as if this kit is
designed to be tank fed in a "normal" house rather than mains fed.
