SL55 front wheel lock up durring aggressive braking

I have a 2004 SL55 that seems to enjoy locking up the front tires during aggressive braking before turn in. I had a service tech in the car and demonstrated the problem. We left skid marks between 5'-10' long. The dealer says the car is performing as designed and they want me to come and pick up the car. (it has been in four times for this problem). They have already contacted corporate. Is there any way that anyone thinks this is acceptable?

Does anyone else have this problem on their car?

Any suggestions?
