Just found the answer... tried searching the first time but didn't pick this up...

Yup, passenger side is a left hand thread. You will notice that the nuts have different coloured locking rings, mine were green drivers side and white passenger side.

The front hubs are the other way around.

Confirming. Just checked on the car.

The way I remember it, when undoing nuts I had to stomp on the wrench extension that was extending past the back of the car.
