07 335i have power but won't crank/start

I've been reading through numerous threads with similar issue. See problems ranging from dead battery, loose connections, water in/ around the battery tray, something with the trunk latch, to dead starter. Been trying to check things and I think it's just a bad starter. But want to be 100% certain before I go into that task...

Just some background, i had my car in the body shop getting fixed. Half way through they said it stopped cranking. They had to push start it (dumping clutch in gear)
I got it back today. Sure enough got nothing when you press the start button. All you hear is a single faint click from the fuse box area and the fuel pump.
Checked the battery and connections. Reads 12.8 volts. Didn't notice any water around there. Checked all the fuses.

What do y'all guys think? Starter is toast?
Also, I didn't have any problems before this. I read starters usually go out over a few days, not just stop working.

Quick responses are appreciated, but I have a spare car til Saturday when I'll be replacing the starter.

Should drop more. I think around 10-11. No load so most likely bad starter. Try knock on the starter with a long stick or breaker or something
