Idiom : ” to cost an arm and a leg”

It’s going “to cost an arm & a leg”! (not literally! 🙂
This is a common expression used to convey that something is so outrageously overpriced you must pay for it with your body parts!
EXAMPLE:
The engine blew on my car! The new motor, plus the added labor costs are going to “cost an arm and a leg!” I don’t know HOW I’m going to pay for it all!
