'97 528i Won't Start

I have a 1997 528i. Was running fine till yesterday. Now it won't start. All dash display's light up properly, battery has a full charge, all items work properly, alarm, etc. I do hear the whir of the iginition system in the engine compartment when I turn the key to start. When I turn the key further to start nothing happens, no attempt to turn over, no whirring, no sound of a bad starter, nothing. I've tried 2 different keys, checked the fuses, turned on and off the alarm system, rolled it back a few feet, tried multiple times, etc. Nothing. Does anyone have any ideas of what to look at next? I'm suspecting a bad starter relay or starter. Just hate the idea of having to get it towed to get it looked at. Thanks in advance for any ideas and/or help.
