It's just that I watched a KLM 737 take off this morning at work while I was doing doing a turnround and then a Ryanair 737 which I knew to be an older model and the older model looked shorter but I was just wandering if it was an optical effect from the different engines.

While some of those lengths are very close to the same (like the -500 and -600), most of those are in fact different lengths ranked as you have listed them (Some, of course, being further apart than others).
The one exception is that the -900ER has exactly the same external dimensions as the base -900. The extra seating comes chiefly from a flat rear pressure bulkhead.
