Hard to tell though, it all depends on what the MKT department decides. The engineering for it is there in both cases (BMW M and AMG), so we know at some point it will happen.
I can not see RWS coming to the M5 and AMG W213 until there is a chassis change.

The GT4 Door shares the chassis with the E63 S, so it is viable for the E63 S to have it in the near future.

The M5 shares plenty of its chassis with the M550i and M850i and they both have it.

We will see. I was surprised they did not launch the F90 with it.

Interesting as the E is W213 and the AMG GT63 is X290.... I just have never seen an LCI update that is so pronounced as RWS while keeping the same chassis.

I do agree that the G30 and F90 probably could swap parts.

Like you said.. we will see.

From what I heard the E63 S will have it as an option.

Oh, I thought you were referring to BMW specifically. Yes the E63S facelift should be very interesting.

RWS is definitely a possibility for the E63S since I believe the AMG GT4D has it currently.

I've always been more fond of this generation of E63 over M5 so I'm very interested to see what slight changes might be made to the car to make it even better than it already was.
New suspension would be a fantastic start... and throw an additional CPU or 10 in there to deal with COMAND's errr response woes. I swear, an E63S can crack a 1/4 mile faster than it'll render the map of wherever you did it.

2021 Refresh I would assume will receive the new MBUX system.
