The main thing about the 8 is that you can't drain out that much oil out of the engine. In my S2, the engine holds 7 L while each oil change drains out 4ish L. That's below 60% of new oil in the car.

On most piston cars, you can get at least 90% of the oil out and you can use synthetic, so yeah 5k+ miles is nothing.
Yeah, I just drained that 8 year old 7700 mile oil, and it was light yellowish brown. Sample going off today, but I ain't scared. I'm 67 and car might outlast me anyway.

Mine looks like this after 3k miles of spirited daily driving.

Results are fine, though. Not too much wear metal and only phosphorus is getting a bit low.
