We've had cars go over 290,000 miles on the original engine. And keep going for the next owner.

You're worrying too much. 6-8 years is nothing for that engine.

I care for my car the best I can. The lowest my car has ever gotten on oil level is 8% and I use the fully synthetic oil. And I try to avoid driving it hard but sometimes can't help it

You would be amazed at how hard people drive their cars and how little they keep up with them... Having some fun in your car isn't necessarily all that hard on it. Sure redlining it all the time isn't great, but some spirited driving shouldn't harm you too much.
