Just a repeat FYI:

If your definition in the quote above is that "bank a" = bank 1 & "bank b" = bank 2...then if Tony's X5 is RHD (like many vehicles in the UK)...then the passenger & driver's side is not the same as it is here in the USA where our vehicles are LHD.

Again, if the OP's vehicle is RHD...if you use "driver" & "passenger" to indicate which side of the car you're referring to...then it is the opposite of our LHD cars here in the states...thus...
  • Bank "A" = driver's side
  • Bank "B" = passenger side
...which is why I replied as I did in post should just use the terms "left" & "right"...not "driver's" or "passenger's" side...because those words mean different sides of the car depending on if the car is RHD or LHD.
