    What is the MSRP?
    FWD or AWD?
    Adjusted CAP cost?
    Residual is always a full percentage of MSRP, not fractional.
    It's not a money factor of .0025, it's 0.25% APR (that's very different)

  • MSRP: $44835
    AWD
    Adjusted Cap Cost: $36,835
    Residual: 53%
    APR is 6% 6 divided by 2400 is .0025 (is how I understood it at least).

    Thanks so much for your help.

    That's where the disconnect is, and why your calculation is so high.

    The APR is not 6%, it's 0.25%.
    Divide by 2400, and you'll get a money factor of .00010 or .00011.

    Re-do your calculations with the correct money factor, and it should match up (or, at least be close)
