What long front end? What were you driving before a Smart car? The front over hang is delightfully short. The hood blister impedes the view of the front edge of the hood but even cars with short front ends can have that problem.

I would imagine it just takes a few drives to get used to it. I'll be coming off a Jeep Wrangler, which is basically a roller skate. I'll probably lean forward in tight situations for a little while, then just get a good sense of where the car is. Don't worry about it.
You will get used to it. And yes, believe it or not, the Mustangs do have a long front end. In fact, I had mine parked next to my wife's 300C the other day and both cars are about the same length, but you wouldn't know it when you get inside both of them. The hood on the Mustang is much longer.
It is no problem for me, as I'm used to cars with long hoods (Trans Ams, etc.). However, based upon many Mustangs I saw while looking and used ones, many people have an issue with this, as many of them had dings on the front bumper or hood.
