Hmm, looks like you're right. Either you need to go to 11 or 12DIN, or else settle for an 85mm brake and tweak them out a few mms. Third option is to buy a set of wider brakes as well and swap them.
Advantages & disadvantages:
1) e.g. Rossi Axium 110 XL - correct brake, good availability, slightly higher DIN range (3.5-11) than you need but nowhere near scary, slightly higher price than a 10 DIN.
2) tweaking brakes - a nuisance, can be tricky, shop may or may not be happy to do it for you and may or may not want some €s for the service
3) buy brakes - correct brakes, extra cost, poor availablity
I'd go for #1 unless the gf was itsy, bitsy, tiny.
