Objects in the mirror

I know the side rearview mirrors on a car have that "objects in mirror closer than they appear," but is it the same for the inside rearview mirror?
I've been doing a lot of paralell parking (or parking against the curb in a line of cars) and I've noticed that the car in back of mine looks to be very close (their front headlights are covered by the rear of my car) but when I get out, there's ample space in between. Not for another car, but a motorcycle might be able to squeeze in.

Or is my distance/depth perception off?
