Hi, when I spoke to the AA/RAC they were fairly wooley on what was "fairly flat" ... but I reckon if the kick is not very pronounced then you should be alright ... its a hard one to call. Maybe you should have a talk to the AA/RAC .. you dont need to be a member, phone numbers are on their respective websites, you might get a different take on what they say.

I know the kick on our Clio is very pronounced prob 30-40 degrees but the Espace is only about 5-7degrees ..... is that fairly flat?

The e-mail I got from EGR suggested the Lexan (Plexiglass) that the headlamps are made from may deform/split if used with headlamp protectors and genuine discharge (Xenon) headlamps, not the normal ones fitted with pesudo HID/Xenon bulbs.

I assume the Xenon equiped Velsatis also has Lexan headlamps?

Best of luck, keep us all up todate on what you find out, it all helps.

Why is it the older I get .... the better I think I was ?
