Unfortunately you're gonna have to either spend a few hundred on a decent, brand new fixture, or search craigslist... Don't be discouraged by cl though, you can find some amazing deals if you're patient and know what to look for. I'd recommend buying a decent fixture from cl then upgrading it with individual reflectors and higher-end bulbs

in MOST cases, you can't add individual reflectors to a fixture that has a single reflector to start with. i would not bother trying to do that.
just buy the right fixture and be done with it.
