MSD Calculation: Check My Math

So I've got under a year to go on my current e90 335xi lease and will likely be in a new BMW this time next year. For the first time, I think I may go the MSD route, but I want to make sure I have the math down correctly. I'm hoping someone can confirm the following scenario. Note that I am using actual figures, but they may be out of date.

MSRP: $60,600
Negotiated Cap Cost: $56,635
Residual (36/10k): $39,390 (65%)
Money Factor (after MSD): .0008 ([Buy Rate] - [7 MSD] or [.00129 - (7*.00007)])
Base Payment Calculations:
  • No MSD: $602
  • MSD: $555

I feel like I have the calculations correct as I am using a spreadsheet I have had for 8 years, but the ~$45 difference in the monthly payment seems off. I didn't think MSD had that much of an impact based on what I have seen on this board. If it does, then I am all over this plan going forward!
