No, the opposite - ($1335-($400 or $250))*interest)/number of payments

The final retained value is $400 (or $250, undecided). You have to pay all of that depreciation over the lease. "Good" news is if you buy car after lease you've already paid for it I suppose. The residual (i.e. purchase price) is only that $400 higher.

I played with adding exhaust at MSRP with 400 residual, using base MF with one add'l security it added $30/mo
