HELP, Cold Starting Problem

arlight so i'm new with bimmers just picked mine up a few months ago. i have an 89 325i. my problem is the car doesnt want to start up right away after is have been sitting for lets say 6 or more hrs. it cranks over no problem but it seems like its not getting fuel. when i try to start it well catch, cough, sputter then die out. it will do that a couple times. crank again it starts, runs like crap, knocks for a few seconds, then runs terrible for about 1min. if i give it gas in that time frame it wants to or does stall. i've taken the fuel relay out stuck a cotter pin in there to straight run the pump before i start it and it doesnt help any. pls help i'm pretty good with domestics but i'm new with german. thank you.
