I was happy with the OEM Conti's but switched to Michelins (premiere A/S IIRC) when it was time (can't beat Costco for tires). My Conti's only lasted around 50k - they weren't really totally worn out but it was October and I didn't want to brave another winter on them, expecially as my kids were learning to drive at that point.

I'm looking for a quite, smooth riding and great gas mileage tire.

I'm looking at these three:
Michelin Premier A/S
Continental Truecontact
Pirelli Cintureto P7

What all do you recommend?
Not sure if you have decided or not we went with Pirelli Cinturato P7 Plus on 2012 TDI SEL and could not be happier. Place I bought them owner drives a 911 Turbo and his parents both have Passat he says tires were made for car. He is independent dealer so he could get whatever I wanted. Great in wet, snow, when we get it many trips still look new.

Nokians are harder to find but there are two great local shops that have offer great prices and great service.
They are relatively inexpensive, but I wouldn't call them "economy tires." They are world class. I've never had a complaint about Nokians. Especially the snow tires. The Finns know about bad weather.

Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus. I've put them on the last five cars because I like their price, they have low road noise, and stick like glue.

Drive safe.

I have the Michelin Premier A/S on my car and Pirelli Cinturato P7 on the wife's car. Both are very quiet tires. The difference? The Michelins are more of a touring ride and the Pirellis are a bit more sporting oriented.
