88k Miles here, original engine.

Still pulls strong in cold weather, but in the heat she's a bit slower than she used to be. I plan on getting the compression checked later this summer, so hopefully I can get a new engine before the 100k warranty is up. I'm not sure how long past 100k it'll last, but it's been a great engine so far since they day I bought her new

130,000 original engine still running strong! Its maintenance has been flawless and way over done, no premix though.

Maybe! Or perhaps the RX8 gods are being kind because they know there is no way in hell I could afford to replace the engine....

89k on original 04 engine. Still runs just as strong as when I first got it (at 66k).

Oil change at least every 5000 miles 5w20 non synthetic.
Redline at least once a day

Ditto!! I id buy an extended warranty though.. I think it will be crap if I do have to replace the engine with it but they have replaced my starter so far..

I think I'm gonna get my compression tested here when I get a second car (beater) to keep miles off my 8. I don't want my engine to be bad, and I don't think it is, but if I can get a new engine before 100k I'd honestly prefer it in a way..

Just an idea guys¨

People with 100 K miles or more would help a lot if they post their maintenance as expo did.

Thanks

Mine got to 76k on original engine and will most likely last the new owner well past 100k.
