These are the manual steps into determining your payment...ghetto way is to plug numbers in to see if they match...holding all other variables constant.
Code:
Gross Captilized Cost [MINUS] Cap Cost Reduction [EQUALS] Adjusted Cap cost Adjusted cap cost (from above)[MINUS] Residual Value [EQUALS] Depreciation and any amortized amounts Depreciation (from above) [PLUS] rent charge (adjusted cap cost [PLUS] residual value)*money factor*lease term) [EQUALS] Total of base monthly payments (depreciation+rent charge) Base monthly payment (from above) [DIVIDE] #months in lease term [EQUALS] Base monthly payment Base monthly payment (from above)[PLUS] sales tax [EQUALS] Total monthly payment * means multiply...

Try looking at your paperwork to see if it's listed on there. However, by law, it is not compulsory for dealerships to list that anywhere on your paperwork. But maybe they did list it.
This is why its very important to know the calculations yourself to spot any "fudging" with the numbers and to reverse the calculations to find out what you need.

I think the current MF for 3series is 0.00127 (or maybe 0.00129?). Is it possible to get this MF without dealership adding to it? Does the same MF apply to ED? or does ED have higher MF?
I remember when I signed the lease back in 2011, dealer told me that I received the best MF from BMWFS, and they also lowered the MF as a customer loyalty program, but the dealer added the same amount. The reason, I quote, "because they always do and normal practice". So I signed and drove around Europe and was happy. This time I want to make sure I don't get my @$$ raped. btw thank you for the formulas. I figured it out. My MF seems a bit high...
