English translation:thousands or even ten thousands of Deutsche Marks
Explanation:
",which have to date cost thousands or even ten thousands of Deutsche Marks."

It sounds better in English if you add the word "even". I also suggest "to date" for bisher.

"DM" in full in English is written as "Deutsche Marks".
