I've had my 8 for almost 5 years now and absolutely love it! You will too.
There are two service bulletins that need to be followed during each condition inspection: SB-14-01-31 (check for stabilizer cracks) and SB-14-02-05 (check for elevator spar web cracks). As long as both pass visual inspection, you're good to go for another year. Mine has always passed, but my shop charges me about $40 in labor to do the inspections.
