Anyone notice that cars seem miles closer in the cockpit rear view mirror than they actually are (compared to looking back for example)?

It might just be me but i find it really off putting as i think someone is getting closer than i orginally thought and/or split times are indicating. This puts me under undue pressure and yup, i do something stupid and loose places.

Anyone else found this?

yep :( one of the main reasons I switched to virtual mirrors. Stops me from thinking the person behind is coming at me like a bat out of hell
