Question '94 BMW 318ci starting issues

When turning the key to start my car in the mornings it seems to be having problems. In the mornings it takes 4-10 times for it to actually start but after that it usually starts the first time the entire day until the next morning. I have put 93 octane fuel and seafoam in it and that seemed to get it to start in 4 times at the most. I was thinking of putting gas treatment in it to see if that would do anything but im afraid it may be the fuel pump.Thanks for any help

could be anything at this point: ignition problem or fuel system problem.
start with the easy stuff: check your spark plugs, battery terminals, fuel filter...if all good then your next guess are bad started, ignition wires, fuel injectors and fuel pump.
is the check engine on? do you have any codes?

I don't think fuel treatment will hurt at this point.
