Muffler change

Hi folks,
The muffler of my Yaris (2007, 2SZ-FE, 64kW) rattles inside when engine is idling. Everything looks OK from outside - little bit of rust but no crack or hole. But I guess something in the livery is (almost) dead. 10 years of service throughout the year including our salty winters is probably enough.

Anyway - I am going to do a replace. I can pick several brands that are available here (Bosal, Ernst, MTS) for about 65 USD each. I can also choose Eberspacher for 140 USD but I have no clue whether it is worth it.
Other brands such as ASMET for 35 USD I consider to be a cheap shit.
I prefer stock look and quiet exhaust. No need to place any fancy exhaust parts.

I suppose that apart from the muffler itself I would only need two bolts, two nuts and a gasket. I will probably replace the rubber rings as well - they are looking OK so far but when I am there already....

Any experience anyone with this? Anything I should be worried about?

Thank you!

How long do you plan on having the car? There are better brand exhausts but if a cheap one works, then its fine. These ones just bolt on, so they probably include new springbolts and a gasket. Thats really the only thing I would worry about. As long as the arent seized, the job should be easy.

My current plan is to keep this car forever. :)
If there are better brands then I am all ears to know more but I am just afraid that I will not be able to get any of them without a serious money to be paid for transport (I am from the Czech Republic and the options are limited here).

Toyota Yaris pumpkin muffler

Since this is a thorough search, kindly list mufflers with OEM external form.

Toyota Yaris pumpkin muffler

The original Yaris muffler has sort of a rounded corner cube shape that owners have affectionately called "pumpkin muffler." Apparently, some of the aftermarket replacements have a more typical automobile muffler shape.

Ah, now I get it. You probably refer to this type of muffler. But my Yaris does not have this one. It is a "normal barrel" type, looks like this one.
But all the aftermarket products here look the same. So either the pumpkin muffler was not mounted to my car or somebody before me (I am not the first owner) already replaced it which I doubt (the muffler has embossed Toyota logo on it plus I have bought this Yaris when it was only 5 years old. I suppose that original exhaust muffler would last more than five years).

I have investigated further this topic and it seems that all 2007 Yaris here in the Czech Republic are driving with the "normal barrel" exhaust muffler. I have peeked below 3 cars I was able to find on parking lots and thery are all using this muffler so I suppose that this muffler is either officially paired with 2SZ-FE engine or the "European production" was completely equipped with this, no matter the engine.
