Question on Octane Used on my Wife's Car

So I leased my wife a 2019 Audi Q7 3.0T back in 2019 for a 3 year period.

Now for all of MY cars, I treat them better than my first born, but since this was a lease and we decided we would definitely re-lease a new car at the end, I decided to use 87 octane instead of the recommended 91 octane. I know, I know. Bad bad cheap me. BUT now that the car has served us so well, my wife wants to keep it. UGH. The car drives fine and I have followed the maintenance schedule, but have I done any real harm? How could I check and see if it's worth keeping? I'm usually the type of person that even treats rental cars well, but with this car I just didn't think it was worth it since we weren't going to keep it.

Thoughts?
