No problem, only you will be paying more for your fuel.
Cars requiring lower Ron can running on higher Ron fuel, but if your car requires Higher Ron fuel you cannot run it with the lower Ron fuel. Will have knocking and in long run will damage your car.... smile_tongue.gif

Higher octane fuels are used for vehicles with higher compression rations. A higher compression ratio gives an engine a higher horsepower per engine weight than one with a lower compression ratio — making the engine high performance.

RON97 is recommended for drivers of vehicles with an engine capacity above 2,500cc.

First part is correct for higher compression engine, but not all high cc cars comes with higher compression, so 2500cc not necessary need to use Ron 97.
More over with new technology like GDi and even Mazda new skyactiv engine with high compression are tuned to use Ron 95 only... smile_tongue.gif

Fifth Gear did a very good comparison on the RON. The different is really insignificant.

Second video shows got difference if driving performance engine. Modern engine the ECU can detect and adjust to run on the fuel but with lower power. Old school engine like mine the ECU cannot detect so running on Ron95 it will knock, unless manual de-tune. So if need to de-tune then no point mah! might as well drive non performance car.....hahaha smile_big.gif
